Princeton PiggyBack® Applications

Shingles, roofing tiles, bulky insulation...No Problem. The stability, maneuverability, and power of Princeton’s PiggyBack® Forklift line has proven almost indispensable in the delivery of construction materials of all kinds, particularly roofing materials of all kinds. Now, deliver these products to precisely where they will be used at the delivery site, maximizing both customer service and delivery efficiency.

The Concept

The Princeton PiggyBack® Truck-Mounted Forklift is a proven method for delivery heavy-duty building materials directly to the job site. Historically, these materials were delivered to the edge of a site by a dump bed truck or truck-mounted crane. Costly double-handling of these materials was then required by the customer to get them to where they would be used. The PiggyBack® truck-mounted forklift enables your driver to spot-deliver materials precisely where your customer wants them, faster and easier, on virtually any work site with unmatched stability.

A PiggyBack® can save you a lot of money both by eliminating virtually all double-handling and by reducing delivery related product damage. It also is invaluable for pickups or for correcting misplacement of products on the job site.

Princeton's PiggyBack® Truck-Mounted Forklifts are available in many, different models with a wide range of available lift heights...capacities up to 8,000 lb... and other, special features that allow it to be configured to your, specific delivery requirements. All PiggyBack® units mount in less than a minute behind virtually any truck or trailer for easy transport to and from the job site.

If you currently use tow-behind or trailered forklifts, you already recognize the benefits of having a portable unloading unit with your delivery vehicle. The Princeton PiggyBack® Truck-Mounted Forklift provides all these benefits in a highly efficient package that eliminates the complications of towed vehicles.
